Thanksgiving week is usually filled with traffic but this year, it is predicted to be more hectic than usual.

According to AAA, there will be more than 55 million people traveling at least 50 miles or more during Thanksgiving. This year’s Thanksgiving travel will be the second-busiest travel day since 2000. 

Although travel is expected to be super busy, the weather this week may derail travelers’ plans. Mother Nature may hit us with storms in the Central, Northeast and Western regions of the U.S.

Here’s what you should know about the weather this week:

Rain And Snow In The Northeast

According to the National Weather Service, weather conditions are supposed to improve during the week but there will be rain in the NYC area and the eastern part of Maine. Some areas may experience up to 2 inches of rain. 

New England, New Hampshire and Maine will most likely experience snow with Monday and Tuesday being the days with the heaviest snowfall. 

Snow In The West

The cold front will be moving east and bringing snow to Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming then on Tuesday moving further east to Nebraska and Kansas. 

The National Weather Service released a warning saying: “There is a chance that travel could become impossible in the Denver area Tuesday morning, so residents should be prepared for that possibility.”

Denver is predicted to get about a foot of snow.

In Wyoming, there will be about six to 12 inches of snow with wind speeds reaching 35 miles per hour. 

From Monday until Wednesday there is a snow watch from northwestern Kansas to southwestern Minnesota and precipitation from New Mexico to Michigan. 

Tuesday and Wednesday will be rainy in a large portion of the country — from Louisiana to eastern Michigan.
